Operation Christmas Child Inventory Update 11/3/2019

Updated: Nov 24, 2019


Our Operation Christmas Child packing party is one week from TODAY! The packing party will be held next Sunday, November 10th at 3pm downstairs in the Van Wyk Fellowship Hall (accessible from Saddle River Rd. lot). Light refreshments will be served. And, of course, Christmas carols will be playing!


We have received additional donations since our last update. Here is the latest inventory to give you all an idea of what is needed to fill our shoe boxes. We fill shoe boxes based on age and gender categories (age 2-4 boy/girl, age 5-9 boy/girl, age 10-14 boy/girl).


In addition to donations of items, monetary donations will also be accepted. Each shoe box costs $9 to ship.

We are also grateful for all donations that have already been received.
